Former Wrestling Champion Fights Off Seven Police

This is the moment a former Olympic wrestling champion proved his strength by fending off seven police officers who tried to arrest him. Vyacheslav Oliynyk, who won a gold medal for Ukraine in the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, shrugged off pepper spray and batons as officers attempted to restrain him in Kiev. The former wrestling champion, who had been celebrating his 50th birthday, was eventually tackled to the ground by police who accused him of drink-driving.
